6 Bottles Cliff Lede Magic Nights Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 750ML, Rock Block Series
6 Bottles of Cliff Lede Magic Nights Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 750ML, Rock Block Series
Notes from the Winemaker
It’s as dark as midnight and delights the taster with deep rich cassis, candied violets, lilacs, blackberry, warm summer mulberries, and melted black licorice.
Our estate vineyard blocks are named after Cliff’s favorite rock songs and albums. The name of this blend is derived from The Who’s "Magic Bus" in our Poetry vineyard and from The Moody Blues’ "Nights in White Satin" in our Twin Peaks vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon in "Magic Bus" is planted in shallow volcanic soil and farmed to low yields, contributing structure, concentration and classic Stags Leap character to the backbone of the blend. "Nights in White Satin" is a block of Merlot that contributes a luxurious perfume, flavors of ripe, dark fruit, and plush texture.
Reviews and Accolades
95 Points/Wine Enthusiast
This is a robust, deeply concentrated wine, richly layered and densely textured in red fruit, crushed rock, sage and cedar. Grippy tannins reveal its youthful vigor and relative restraint that is not ready to rush out of the gate quite yet. Let the power deepen and develop further in the cellar and enjoy from 2028–2038.
